The subject who is truly loyal to the Chief Magistrate will neither advise nor submit to arbitrary measures. For hundreds of years, the story goes, the native Huron people called the place where this city now rests a "meeting place," using a word that sounded like Toronto.
It is a romantic image from the past -- native people gathering, trading, holding ceremonies -- that fits well with Mississsauga Toronto's identity as a multicultural capital of commerce. Cited on countless travel Web sites promoting the city, this origin for Toronto's name pops up again and again in newspaper and magazine articles, on invitations kn conventions and on amateur historical sites.
But according to Humber College professor John Steckley, the story is all wrong and Toronto wasn't a "meeting place" for native people at all. Steckley, an expert in native languages who speaks Huron and has a PhD Beautiful mature seeking online dating Indianapolis anthropology, says most scholars now agree that the city's name comes from the Mohawk word tkarontowhich means "where there are io in the water.
Barely anyone You were in Mississauga il for a meeting the city seems to know this, Dr.
Steckley says, partly because the other definition -- which comes from a 19th-century historian who didn't speak a native language -- makes such a useful slogan for the modern city.
The journey from tkaronto to Toronto is anything but direct. Steckley says the word originally referred to a place now called Atherley Narrows, about kilometres fkr of the city, near Orillia.
There, the water moves quickly as it flows between Lake Couchiching and Lake Simcoe. As many as 4, years ago, native people drove stakes into the water to create fish weirs -- enclosures -- to catch fish as they swam through the narrows.
This continued for centuries, and was so successful that the place was considered sacred, a MMississauga where the creator had guaranteed a bountiful source of food.
The Mohawks called it tkarontoand even named all of Lake Simcoe after it. French explorers picked up the name, altering it slightly, and it appeared on a map around as Lac Taronto.Housewives Want Hot Sex Sawyerville Alabama 36776
In the early 18th century, werf French built what was sometimes called Fort Toronto, down at the mouth of the Humber, where the city stands today. Later, after the British had taken over, Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe, who apparently didn't like native names, changed the name of the city to York in The citizenry petitioned to get the old name back, and inthey got their wish.
So how did the Huron "meeting place" definition creep into popular myth? It comes from a prominent 19th-century local historian, Henry Scadding, in his work Toronto: He cited a 17th-century French missionary's translation of the Huron word toronton as il y a beaucoup -- iil is a lot.
And he interpreted it to mean a lot of people, or a meeting place. Nonsense, according to Dr.
Steckley, who said Scadding and other scholars of his era were ignorant of native languages. And there is no way you would use it in that context. But the "meeting place" story lives on.
Steckley goes to visit public-school classrooms to tell traditional native stories, both pupils and their teachers often repeat the well-worn Huron definition. Years ago, officials from Toronto's failed Olympic bid called him Yoy were disappointed to learn that they Horny women Austin Texas be wrong to use the "meeting place" myth in their promotional material.
Steckley hopes to get the word out about the origins of the city's name through the media. I know I sound like a fanatic, but I am. University of Western Ontario instructor David Kanatawakhon Maracle, who teaches Mohawk language and Mixsissauga, said native people thought differently than Europeans about naming places. They simply described their natural surroundings, and almost never named them after people. There were likely several places named tkarontohe said, but the name stuck because the French were the ones who wrote it down on a map.Lonely Wives Looking Hot Sex Las Vegas
And the fact that most Torontonians don't seem to know where the name really comes from, he says, illustrates a gap in the education system. We use aboriginal words for a number of place names in the greater Toronto area and beyond, often without knowing what they meteing.

Ojibway for "where there are alders," describing the bushes that still grow along Etobicoke's Humber River. In the original tongue, the K would have been pronounced.
